Default RE: Tank Reference Books

Here's a few of my favorite reference books. Applied modeling- self explantory. Panzer tactics- lots of pictures with plenty of notes about tactics, its almost like a tank manual and photo album combined. Images of Kursk- again alot of pictures plus a good deal of historical info. German Armored Warfare- Alot of pictures with some history, not bad but I wouldn't rely on it as your only source for model building. Tanks & Armoured Vehicles of WWII- not much use to a modeler but has nice color pictures to show the wife when your presenting your case to buy another tank. It has one or two pictures of most of the armored vehicles from WWII. Tigers in the Mud- written by Otto Carius, it covers his military career, hardly any pictures but a good book to read. A good read for someone looking for the point of view from a German tanker. Better than "Rommel" IMO.
